Torly Kid store in Tribeca is hosting their monthly bookclub and kids are invited to this fun evening. The store hosts this monthly event on the first Wednesday of the month. They ask that kids read the book ahead of time as they will be discussing the book at the book club through projects and crafts.
Marches book is The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. Berlin, 1942: When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move to a new house far, far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people in the distance. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different from his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.
